NEW YORK ---- The mounting odds and the New York Knicks were too much to overcome for the Orlando Magic – or what was left of them.
The Magic had only eight players available in the second half, and fell to the struggling Knicks 113-106 Monday night in overtime at Madison Square Garden.
They also lost Dwight Howard in the extra period after he fouled out and picked up his 17th technical foul (one more tech and he will be suspended for a game). "It was tough after that," coach Stan Van Gundy said.
Howard protested his sixth foul on an offensive rebound with one minute, 17 seconds left, and Orlando behind 108-106. He angrily flung the ball to the other end of the floor.
